At the end of a very hectic five week world tour, we took a few days to relax at this beautiful spa resort. I had often looked at this hotel in the brochures and wanted to stay here, despite the fact that we are not usually "into" large luxury hotels.
I thought it was a fabulous place and thoroughly enjoyed my time here, whereas my husband felt it was too "posh" and snobbish. We both agreed it was the most luxurious resort we've ever stayed at.
My Tips are created from observations I made at the time and notes I made in my diary.
The whole island IS Pangkor Laut hotel, but only 20% of the island has been developed, the rest is pure virgin rainforest!
Only residents are allowed on the island. While we were there, the passengers of a passing million-dollar yacht were refused permission to land at the beach!
There are various choices of accommodation at Pangkor Laut. Hill Villas are spread along the hillside up from the pool and beach, Pool Villas are on the flat around the pool, Water Villas are on stilts over the water and Spa Villas are the most luxurious set around the corner from the rest with their own spa complex.
